You can hire a self loading semi with flatdeck trailer, may have to be lowbed type trailer. Should be a few around, get estimates. Similar move cost me 500 before I built my own trailer.

I should have built a trailer for my current boat and towed it home, before I started all the repair work. It's been on the hard for three years now and the trailer would have saved me at least $10,000 in yard fees and travel costs.

I built a trailer for my Hunter 27 back in 1983. I asked friend to give me a hand building it and we had the boat sitting on the trailer ready to roll in about 10 hours time. It cost me about $200 too.

The simple (car type) trailer might work if you can fit a 27' boat on it. Most car trailers are in the 14-18' range.
